Product Description

About the Author

Stephen Walther—through his training company Superexpert AspWorkshops (www.AspWorkshops.com)—has taught workshops on building Web applications using Visual Studio .NET at NASA, Lockheed Martin, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. House of Representatives, Verizon, and others.

He is the author of the book ASP.NET Unleashed and a contributing author to ASP.NET Tips, Tutorials, and Code.

He got his start working with Active Server Pages by developing two large commercial Web sites. First, he created the Collegescape Web site, a Web site used by more than 200 colleges—including Harvard, Stanford, and M.I.T.—to accept online college applications (Collegescape was bought out by Petersons). Next, he created the CityAuction Web site, an auction site used by both Snap! and CitySearch (CityAuction was acquired by CitySearch).

He received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of California at Berkeley. He was a Ph.D. candidate in Linguistics and Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology when he became involved with the World Wide Web.

Previously, I had done some work in ASP, PHP, and a whole other jumble of languages, and then thought I'd look into ASP.NET. The day I got this book, I could not put it down (apart from typing the example code)! The tone is very relaxed and easy to read. The examples are very clear and understandable. Also, examples are in both C# and VB.NET next to each other, and explaining the benefits and disadvantages of each.
Also, the book covers two major aspects for me, ASP.NET, and also how to effectively use Visual Studio.NET which effectively combines two books into one, and applies each to the other.
In conclusion, this is a very well written book that covers 2 topics in VB.NET and C#, and in great detail. A 'must-get' for anyone into ASP.NET and Visual Studio.NET.

Hi,
Read the book cover to cover. Overall I liked it a lot and would recommend it to anyone to buy. The things which I did not like are:
1) It's based on Visual Studio .Net 2002 version - Not the 2003 version. - There are subtle differences, the main one being they dropped the Insert Menu completely from the 2003 version, and put the contents of some of it in the Format Menu.
Took me a bit of time to work that one out.They could have had enhancements / corrections on a web site!!
2)If it had a questions section / Exercises section to re-enforce the knowlege of each chapter that would have been great.
May be just have lots of multiple choice questions on a cd, or on a web site.
But apart from that it was good.

I've been a classic ASP developer for many years and a move into ASP.NET had been hindered by a lack of time and the books being over complicated.
This book however is excellent. It's much like the great Sams 'Teach yourself ASP 3.0 in 21 days' which was a cracking book. It takes you through the major components in a logical manner which is easy to understand and it really does get you into how ASP.NET is such a major move from classic ASP.
I've worked through the book and am now far happier with ASP.NET and woudl recommend this to anyone.

This is the first time I've put a review in for a book, but this book was excellent and exactly what I needed.
I am a competent developer in another tool and this is assumed by this book. It is the most quickest, dirtiest, fastrack to getting to grips with Visual Studio and ASP.NET I could think of.
No time has been wasted, the author simply dives into many of the features of ASP.NET (in both VB.NET & C#) with great examples and exercises for you to follow.
If you've programmed before and want to quickly get to grips with ASP.NET. This is your book.
